Metabolite of the non-mevalonate pathway, generally found in prokaryotes, as precursor to isoprenoids as well as non-isoprenoids like vitamins. As this pathway is not present in humans, it is of interest for the development of bacterium-specific drugs in the search for treatments of infectious diseases.

1-Deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate is used as a substrate for the identification, differentiation and characterization of procaryotic 1-Deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate reductoisomerase(s) (Dxr) which catalyze the first committed step of the nonmevalonate pathway (NMP) for isoprenoid biosynthesis.
